Windows doesn't offer biasing with dual homing (your configuration here). So you can't have both connections active.

Another option here is to turn off the WiFi services so the desktop systems use the Ethernet connections only. Then connect the Ethernet hub to your internet router wired or via a WiFi Router to the Cable modem's WiFi AP. That way the connections are faster for both file sharing and to the internet.

The other option here is to have only on of the desktops connected to the both Ethernet & WiFi (multi-homed). Then you'll need to setup pass-though services making that desktop as a router for the other two systems.
